Airbus Makes Another ACJ Sale in China
An undisclosed Chinese customer ordered an Airbus ACJ319 on the second day of Airshow China 2012. The aircraft will feature the new fuel-saving sharklet wingtips. The deal takes the European airframer’s ACJ sales tally in China to more than 25, with both ACJ318s and ACJ319s already active in the country with operators including BAA Jet Management, China Eastern Executive Aviation, Comlux Asia, Deer Jet, Hong Kong Jet and TAG Aviation. With Chinese buyers in mind, Airbus has developed a so-called Phoenix cabin interior with features such as a circular table. The company, which has sales offices in both Beijing and Hong Kong, has sold more than 170 ACJs.
